EDISON, N.J., May 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avaap, among the fastest growing and largest Infor Alliance partners, was named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Fastest Growing Technology Company category in The 14th Annual American Business Awards. Avaap Product and Delivery Manager Massimo Emilione also received a Bronze award as Technical Professional of the Year.

The American Business Awards (nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,”) are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. More than 3,400 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration.

Avaap’s rapid growth has been the result of an expanded geographic footprint and Infor consulting team to meet increased demand for Infor Lawson upgrades and implementations as well as general ERP, Business Intelligence and HCM services.  Innovation is a key focus contributing to growth with the introduction of several solutions to extend capabilities of Infor Lawson and Infor M3 software.

A philosophy of “love what you do” defines the culture at Avaap and how the organization continues to attract top talent and meet its growth goals. Massimo Emilione, recipient of the Technical Professional of the Year award, embodies the qualities of Avaap, driving product direction and implementing changes into Avaap’s software to deliver a better solution and deployment experience for customers.

“It is thrilling to see Avaap win another award, but what is more exciting is that Massimo is being recognized for his work in bringing Avaap Test Automation to the market,” said CEO Dhiraj Shah. “Massimo is a road warrior, product champion, brand master and technologist rolled into one. His vision for the product, passion for the customer and understanding of the intersection between the two are why he is an exemplary member of the technology community and well-deserving of the Technical Professional of the Year award. On behalf of everyone at Avaap, I wish him congratulations and continued success.”
